CHARLESTON, SC (WCBD) – The countdown is on to the Cooper River Bridge Run! If you plan to head out to watch or run the race, here is a look at the forecast.

Waking up Saturday morning, expect some patches of dense fog that could slow down the commute to the race course. Be sure to budget plenty of extra time to get to where you need to go.

Temperatures will start off in the upper 50s to low 60s, a comfortable start due to mostly cloudy skies. Runners look to stay mainly dry during the race; a stray shower is possible, but when running 6.2 miles a shower might feel good. 

However, temperatures will slowly rise during the race approaching–70 degrees by noon when the race will slowly wrap up. 

Winds will be light out of the northwest, but shouldn’t cause too many problems for the runners. 

After-race festivities could see an isolated shower or two as temperatures continue to warm into the upper 70s and low 80s by the afternoon.

Good Luck running getting over the bridge tomorrow!
